Scavenger Hunt

1. Stripes

This week I'm playing Ashley Fisk's scavenger Hunt looking for photos to fit the prompts: stripes,  packed, travel, too cute and favorite.

I can remember a time when most sailboats had white sails.  I LOVE the colours available now  and I'm always glad to see sailors wearing colourful life vests as well.

2. Packed

Yacht clubs really pack the boats in, which makes interesting reflection, dontcha think?

3. Travel

Muscle power is an inexpensive way to travel over water, plus paddlers can get into some nifty tight spaces that bigger boats cannot.

4. Too cute

It's a tiny Gray Tree Frog resting on a leaf in the sun.

5. Favorite

I'm not good at picking favourites. I don't have a favourite colour (I like most), song, ice cream flavour...yada, yada, yada. But wait! I do have a favourite hobby: photography. And I do love photographing birds, especially Green Herons.

I love the sails, and the canoes, and the boats packed in.

Nice shots and I always like paddling along in a canoe.

You did a terrific job!! I love these and particularly the frog and the bird!! Photography is the most fun ever! Can't believe I didn't really get into it until I was an "old" broad!!! Have a great new week, EG!!!

William Kendall said...

A splendid series, EG. The heron in particular is quite striking.

Taken For Granted said...

That Green Herron doesn't mind posing for a portrait either. Think all your photos have succeeded in fulfilling the task.

Fabulous choices.
I've always thought sailing would be fun to try. The striped sail is really colorful.
They do pack the boats in and yes I like the reflections very much. Not sure I'd be out there in a canoe and if I was I'd be wearing that life jacket for sure.
Adorable frog, I love how bumpy his skin looks.
So glad photography is a favorite of yours and Green Herons. This is a wonderful shot of it.

Ginny said...

These are all outstanding! The first two pictures are just brilliant with color in all the right places. The frog is adorable! The green heron has a very intense look!! I guess he is always looking for prey.

Felicia said...

wonderful selection of images.

Carver said...

Great mix of shots. The little tree frog is a wonderful find.

Rose said...

I love pictures of boats/ships/etc...don't know why.

You know, I don't even have a favorite hobby...I love photography, but love quilting and sewing and reading. If I am don't have a book I am reading on, then something is bad wrong. And photography and quilting are just always there in my mind...I am either thinking of one or the other...

Jack said...

You nailed these, EG. You win!

abrianna said...

Beautiful shot of that green heron. I don't think I've seen one before.

Kathy said...

Your finds on this scavenger hunt were right spot on! Love that teeny little frog!
